Caption Contest - May 2018 - Results

The May caption contest had 25 entries and featured a cartoon a group of people at a burial site. The people seem disinterested in the burial and are instead looking at their laptop and tablet screens. Sticking out of the coffin are equations for calculating the variance, the sample correlation, and binomial probabilities.

The winning caption for the May contest was "In the age of Information Technology, paper-and-pencil statistics are finally laid to rest," written by Justine Leon Uro. Justine is a student at the University of the Philippines Open University – our first international winner! The caption should prove helpful in discussing how technology should be used to stress the importance of conceptual understanding over procedures and formulas.
